All Sapphire teams will practice exclusively in the Bitterroot Valley and participate in a competitive tournament schedule that follows a traditional MT AAU schedule. Practices for Sapphire teams will begin in late February or early March and the season will go into May. Sapphire teams practice twice per week and will begin 3 weeks ahead of the first tournament date. Sapphire team schedules will vary by age group but will compete in approx. 5 events. All Sapphire teams will be staffed with one head coach.
